As I mentioned in another thread, I'm going to shoot slide film after years of pause. I got myself elite chrome extra color (I'm going to shoot nature, and I like warm, saturated colors). I'll also try to get Velvia. My question is, what is the maximum zone slide film renders in general? Should I put highlights in zone VII or rather VI+1/2 just to be safe? I don't have a spot meter but just partial metering of Canon 500, which has quite large surface area and does not register small stand-alone bright spots very well. Also, what is a safe zone for "Caucasian palm" metering? VI seems ok for negative film, but that lives very narrow zone VII for really bright highlights. Thanks.
